OK, so I just bought this PowerBook G4 1Ghz with a busted display for $75. Other than the busted LCD panel, it seems to work pretty nicely. I've already burned a few CD's, connected to my wireless network, even reinstalled Panther (just to get the previous owner's data off the machine). I'm actually using the machine to make this post. I am having one issue, though, related to external video. Whenever I do anything that may put a strain of any kind on the video card, the screen blacks out and comes back when it's "safe", for lack of a better word. For instance, if I take this Safari window and drag it wildly across the screen, it will cut out momentarily (sometimes for long periods of time). Other things like Exposé, Dock magnification, the Genie effect, even the cube effect that is used while setting up Mac OS X immediately after a fresh installation caused the screen to cut out. So far I've (to the best of my knowledge) reset the PRAM and NVRAM, reinstalled the OS obviously, even removed the bottom casing and physically disconnected the computer's attached LCD. While just using the machine for basic tasks, it looks great. The display is crisp and clear and completely uninterrupted. Should I just part this machine out or what? What can I do? I'd like to buy a new panel and make this machine 100% again, but I'm afraid to put the money into it at this point.
